Timmy Telescope Solar Astronomy Outreach

Setup and Equipment

Materials needed for collapsible tabletop frames

We used PVC pipe to to build our collapsible displays. These can be adapted to any size and are easily transported. The larger frame displays our Current Information boards.

Note: We are now using round curtain rod clips and string to secure the boards on the frame. The sun and heat of our climate often caused the velcro to pull off the poster boards.

The smaller frame holds our Health Effects cards-- English on one side and Spanish on the other side.
